2018 Quota Uptake - Landings

The European Community fishing quotas are determined at the December meeting of the Council of Ministers held in Brussels.  These quotas are published in an annual Total Allowable Catch Regulation; this legislation fixes the fishing opportunities for certain fish stocks and groups of fish stocks, applicable in Union waters and, to Union vessels, in certain non-Union waters.  This year's regulation is Council Regulation (EU) No 127/2018.

The Species stock areas may be denoted by a single ICES area e.g. Cod in ICES area VIIa (the Irish Sea), or may be a combination of ICES areas. When a national quota catch limit for a stock area has been reached, landings of that species by vessels belonging to that nation are no longer permitted.

A map showing the ICES areas in the North East Atlantic may be downloaded here.

The following table shows the percentage uptake by Irish fishing vessels of the national quota by species stock area. Note: Not all stock areas are included below, the absence of a species/area combination does not imply that it is not under quota.
